Renault will launch 3 hydrogen models

Hyvia, a joint venture created in early June by Renault and the American group Plug, unveils its technological roadmap with 3 fuel cell light commercial vehicles planned for the end of the year.

Hyvia, the French joint venture Renault and the American Plug Power unveils its plans and announces the arrival of its first models at hydrogen by the end of 2021.

This entity represents Renault’s new path to green hydrogen mobility. In addition to these fuel cell models, Hyvia will offer the production, storage and distribution of green hydrogen as close as possible to its customers’ needs. To do so, the joint venture will notably offer hydrogen charging stations.

Three fuel cell LCVs

The entity will rely on the expertise of Renault Group to launch its hydrogen models by the end of the year. As a reminder, the French group is the leader in electric utility vehicles in Europe with a 40% market share, but also a pioneer in hydrogen utility vehicles since 2014.

Hyvia therefore relies on a solid actor who knows his subject to launch his offensive with three vehicles:
Master Of H2-Tech : a large van for transporting goods, with 12 m3 of usable volume and a range of up to 500 km.
Master Châssis Cab H2-Tech : a large van for transporting larger goods, with 19 m3 of usable volume and a range of around 250 km.
Master Citybus H2-Tech : an urban minibus for the transport of 15 people, with a range of approximately 300 km

All of these three vehicles are designed on a “Dual Power” architecture: dual energy, electric and hydrogen.

In terms of autonomy, the vehicles offer up to 500 km: 100 km are obtained on electric energy and nearly 400 km on hydrogen energy.

The entity will offer a complete ecosystem

Hyvia wishes to offer its customers a turnkey solution. To do so, the entity will also offer electrolysers, mobile hydrogen storage stations but also refueling stations. All these equipments will be offered for rental or purchase.

The entity will be exclusively based in France, with several sites: Villiers Saint-Frédéric for Headquarters and R&D, Flins for processes, manufacturing and logistics, Batillyand finally Gretz Amainvilliers.
